Testing Saved Post Drafts

Last week we discussed saving drafts of posts in case of browser crashes. Today we're testing this out on MetaFilter. [more inside]

The Emotional Labor Thread shouldn't be the exception

Let’s talk about expanding our ideas of boyzone-type derailing and how to be the best Metafilter we can be. [more inside]

Bass guitar comment

Hey all. I could swear that I read a sad comment on this site not so long ago from a female Mefite that ran along the lines of "When I was a kid I wanted to play bass guitar but I was told I couldn't because bass was 'only for boys'. I gave up the bass." [more inside]

Be sure to whitelist MeFi when using iOS 9 content blockers

Just a friendly reminder: if you're using one or more iOS devices, have upgraded to iOS 9 and have jumped on the new content blocking functionality bandwagon, remember to add your favorite sites to the whitelist(s) of the blocker(s) of your choice. I added MeFi and other frequently visited faves of mine, seeing that ads served here by The Deck are high quality and unintrusive, and no doubt important for keeping the site going.

As much as I enjoyed participating in this thread about people's memories of 1985, and as much as everyone else seems to have enjoyed it (56 favorites and 121 comments on an AskMeFi thread -- is that some kind of record?), I have to wonder... how did it not get flagged as chatfilter? [more inside]

Post deletions officially getting ridiculous.

Completely harmless posts in a non-contentious thread. What the hell is up?
